A New Children’s Book by Mary Holland

Arbordale Press has just released my 14th children’s book, Animal Myths.  Close-up photographs and simple text reveal the misconceptions some animal myths convey.  Does a porcupine actually throw its quills?  Are bats blind?  Do toads give you warts?  These and 10 other animal myths are examined within the pages of this book.  The last two pages provide mix-and-match activities for 4-9 year-old readers.  Available online or independent bookstores.  (You may have to request that your bookstore order you a copy if they don’t already carry it!)

    Congratulations on #14! That looks like a really interesting book…as well as close-ups of all the animals.
